Modern-style buildings by architect Stanley Saitowitz give University Circle's Uptown development a new sense of place

Many of the world’s most beautiful modern and contemporary buildings are solo acts.
They’d rather stand by themselves or break sharply with their surroundings than fit in with their neighborhoods as part of a larger ensemble. Put another way, it’s hard to think of making a city street out of multiple versions of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s 1929 Barcelona Pavilion, one of the iconic buildings that launched the modernist movement.
San Francisco architect Stanley Saitowitz believes you can have both traditional urbanism and modern design. In the two apartment buildings he’s designed for the initial phase of the Uptown development in University Circle, now nearing completion, he has emphatically departed from the tradition of modernist isolationism.
